Genshin Impact Guide

Genshin Impact is a live-service, massive, open-world RPG, released on the mobile, PC, and PS4/PS5 platforms. Version 2.0 is a massive update that opens up the third main region in the game, Inazuma. This island archipelago offers a lot of new activities, enemies, challenges, puzzles, and more to the player. In our Crystal Marrow farming guide, we will provide the necessary pointers on how to find and farm this new resource from Inazuma.
A crystal that contains a sliver of Tatarigami power. Adding this material during smelting will greatly increase the strength and toughness of metals.

In Inazuma, "Tatarigami" refers to the corpse of a divine being and the strange phenomena it creates. They say that before the god that created Crystal Marrow became the Tatarigami, it had many names, one of which was "Orobashi no Mikoto." Orobashi no Mikoto's body was as long as the winding seashore, and its voice was so resounding that only the Dark Sea could absorb it. Yet in the end, it too was cut down together with Yashiori Island itself. (-Archive Description)

What are Crystal Marrows

These crystals are found sprouting along the massive bones of the slain serpent, Orobashi. There are usually several marrows that can be harvested in an immediate area, as long as you remain within the vicinity of the ancient bones.

Crystal Marrows Uses

Currently, there are no weapons or food recipes that require Crystal Marrows. Sayu is the current character for now that requires crystal marrows for ascension. You’ll need a total of 178 crystal marrows to fully ascend Sayu. Furthermore, you’ll need to give a total of 24 crystal marrows to Chouji as part of the world quest “Gazing Three Thousand Miles Away”.

In the wild, Crystal Marrows can be found mainly in Yashiori Island, with a small patch found in Kannazuka Island. Thankfully, Mihoyo’s official interactive map has been updated and will include the individual locations of the Crystal Marrows. We highly recommend using this map since it also provides the locations of other important spots like oculi, materials, statues, and more.

If you’re a PC and mobile player, you can also log in to the official Mihoyo site so you can manually mark off/hide the one-time resources that you have collected like the electroculi. This will make it easier for you to track the ones you have already collected or not. If you’re an original PS4/PS5 player like me, it will be a good idea to enable cross-save by using a fresh email account (with no Genshin Impact progress) to a Mihoyo account. That way, you can keep track of your progress with the interactive map by using it on your phone or mobile device while playing on the console.

Since Crystal Marrows are (currently) not used in any cooking recipes or as weapon materials, there’s really no immediate need of collecting them except if you have Sayu and you’ll want to fully ascend her. There are only a total of 64 crystal marrows that can be collected in a single day so you may need to wait for a couple of days or visit other players’ worlds and ask if you can farm this resource from there if you want to fully ascend Sayu. Otherwise, just collect the necessary amount of crystal marrows to complete the “Gazing Three Thousand Miles Away” quest.
